Sony Smart TV Driver

Sat Dec 31, 2016 9:34 am

I was wondering if there is a driver to control Sony smart TVs? I see the tv showing up in the AV section of the Family manager as a media player, but if I click on the driver events I don't see anything showing up, and none of the commands seem to be doing anything.

If there isn't one, can I put in a request for one?

Thank you

The Sony TV broadcasts itself as a DLNA device and that's why the driver discovers it. However, Sony uses a non-standard DLNA command to control the TV. I would have to remote into your system to experiment and test a driver. We can arrange some time after the new year.
